Introduction
Margaret Rouse - WhatIs.com
Technical writer / Editorial Director / Author
 
I speak fluent Geek, Biz-speak, Cloud, SAPanese, VAR, BI/BA, Storage, Security, Agile, Networking, SEO and marketing. I spend my days translating these highly specialized languages into plain English.

I try hard to make my definitions simple and straightforward so that anyone can understand them.  It's not always easy and some days I do better than others.  If you have a suggestion for how to improve a definition, please contact me and let me know!  I'll be happy to list your name as a contributor.

Scripting is often contrasted with system programming, as in Ousterhout's dichotomy or "programming in the large and programming in the small". In this view, scripting is particularly glue code, connecting software components, and a language specialized for this purpose is a glue language.

That definitely depends on the gigs and the pay rates.
